Buill ayns ny Steatyn Unnaneysit reagh

I apologize for using the incorrect articles (y vs. yn) but I was only using the title of the article itself, which, in the case of Russia is Yn Roosh. I have no grammar book for Manx. I'm learning it as I go. In reference to the second part of your message, I don't have the slightest idea as to what your referring to. I've been creating articles for a large number of languages for a few years now, in particular, ones for Cymraeg, Brezhoneg, Gaeilge and Gàidhlig. No one has pointed out to me similar errors. You aren't providing me with an example. I provided a number of articles for the Faroese towns in Gaelg a while back and no one approached me about incorrect category links. Thirdly, I don't have the slightest idea how to create maps, which is why I leave them showing an error. I noticed the one for Oklahoma City was left as it is showing an error. You haven't provided me with any assistance with how to create the maps.

If you would rather that I don't help out I'd be more than happy to comply. I've got things I can work on. I was just trying to bring some unity to having basic articles for all the Gaelic languages. They're fascinating languages with grammar rules I've never encountered before. With the exception of a number or individuals who have learned them, languages like Kernowek and Gaelg are dead. I'm just trying to help the effort to revive them.Jhendin (talk) 22:33, 2 Mart 2013 (UTC)
I have absolutely no idea why you are taking such a dramatic negative attitude with me? I never attacked you. Indeed I welcomed you and thanked you for contributing. I finished up by wishing you, and I quote, "happy editing". I simply pointed out a few things which would help with the project. I'm not expecting you to create maps, and never mentioned them to you. With respect to the categories, you are simply clicking on the red link in the article you have just created and typing in a title. Compare this revision. Your version (incorrect) is the version on the left, with my clean up and amendments shown on the right.
Regarding your statement "I provided a number of articles for the Faroese towns in Gaelg a while back and no one approached me about incorrect category links" - that was 3 years ago. The project has expanded significantly since then, and at the rate you are producing articles it will leave me no time to create my own articles, and instead I will have to concentrate on cleaning up and fixing yours.
Regarding Manx being dead - tell that to the c. 100 native speakers, over 500 fluent speakers and over 2,000 who have some knowledge of Manx. It has radio and television programmes, weekly internet news bulletins, an active community of speakers, etc. That to me is not dead. Etruscan is dead. Noric is dead. Pictish is dead. Manx is not dead. Mac Tíre Cowag 23:19, 2 Mart 2013 (UTC)
If I've come across as being a little testy, you'll have to understand. In the past I have received some of the most unprofessional, immature messages from people. For example, someone from the Maltese Wikipedia told me I had no busy working in a language I have no knowledge in. Verbatim. I've encountered several of these. There was no indication on this person's user page they were an admin. I've read no rules anywhere on Wikipedia stating you have to have sound knowledge of a language before you can work with its particular Wiki. I thought that's what the Embassies were for. One guy from another Wikipedia started contacting me outside of Wikipedia, by email. Another started redecorating my user page. It's almost leaving me to believe I'm being intentionally provoked. It's getting old.
With respect to the example you gave me, I didn't create them. I just paste and copied them from previous articles. I took it for granted you may have. The only change I made was to the name of the state. If they were incorrect, they were so before I got to them, so the correction should have been made before I returned to the Gaelg Wikipedia. One other individual referred to them as "parent links", so there is different terminology out there. There is little Manx I can come up on my own, and I am/was learning it as I go/went along.
If my efforts are interfering, do you feel it would be best if I didn't help out? Otherwise, for what other reason would you have mentioned that? Wasn't that a "dramatically negative attitude?"Jhendin (talk) 01:47, 3 Mart 2013 (UTC)
The beauty of a wiki is that you can see everyone's contributions to a particular page or category. You said you didn't create the categories that I am talking about - This link shows the contrary. It shows that you created a category in which the only content was the phrase, in bold font, "Baljyn coontae ayns Oklahoma" as can be seen here. That type of category is completely pointless as it is left outside of the category tree (which is what the categories are for). Compare the category you created (previous link) with my amended category here. The category is now nestled into the category tree and can now be found from other categories. If you are not confident in handling category creation, then simply leave them for someone else to create, but, please, feel free to continue creating articles.
I do not feel that you're efforts are interfering, and I welcome your contributions to this project. You're last point states "what other reason would you have mentioned that". Mentioned what? Correcting your grammar? Pointing out how to correctly create categories? Telling you you can ask me any question or look for my help or advice? If you are doing something incorrectly then you need to be informed about it. It's not a criticism, and it should not be seen as an attack (which you seem to have assumed here straight from the get go).
Regarding admins - they have no standing above any other editor. The only difference is that they have been entrusted by the community in performing certain tasks not permitted by just any member. Regarding the abuse you seem to have received from other editors.. that is tantamount to harassment and should be reported to the relevant authorities. That kind of abuse is not acceptable outside Wikipedia, and it's not acceptable inside Wikipedia either. Mac Tíre Cowag 18:32, 3 Mart 2013 (UTC)

Mona Douglas reagh

I see that you behind the Mona Douglas article. As a non-Manx-speaker I'm very sorry to not be able to read it, especially as it means that I've been unable to mine it for the page I've created for Mona Douglas on the English-language Wikipedia. Since I have no doubt that your Manx version is much better researched, written and referenced than my version, I thought that you might like to help improve what I've done there. (You might also be interested to put into the Manx version the links to some of her books online that I've sourced). (Jamesfranklingresham) 23:35, 2 Mart 2013 (UTC)

Hi! Could you please translate this into Manx? It is to give information in Ido Wikipedia.

Welcome to the Ido Wikipedia. Ido was first known as reformed Esperanto and was created in 1907 after seven years of deliberation by a committee of professors and linguists. You may notice that Ido looks somewhat like Esperanto, but with a number of differences including a complete lack of diacritical marks, the use of the letter 'q', along with many of the words themselves. If you are studying Ido and want to write for our Wikipedia, feel free! There are people here to correct your Ido should you make a mistake. Just use the {{revizo}} tag whenever you think your article could use some grammatical revision. The main site for the Ido language is located here, Ido publications are located here, and the English Wikipedia article on Ido is located here. A complete list of sites in Ido on the internet is located here. Lastly, the main reasons for choosing Ido over the more well-known Esperanto are summed up in this article.

Thanks for your help. --Chabi1 (talk) 12:26, 28 Mart 2013 (UTC)

Hi Chabi1, could you please give a detailed description of what you want me to translate, including the links (I assume where you have the words "here" should be links). Thanks, Mac Tíre Cowag 22:23, 29 Mart 2013 (UTC)

Could someone translate your answer in English? Because I do not understand what you wrote above. Thanks --Mikulas1 (talk) 12:00, 18 Averil 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sorry Mikulas1. I just stated that it was done now. Hope that helps! Mac Tíre Cowag 19:14, 18 Averil 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
And what did say Shimmin Beg, something that we should make info for Manx speaking in Slovak wikipedia? Because on Slovak there is no info for other languages. And what does mean this: Laaghyn: IOM FIN POL CZE SVK AUT DEU CYM SCO on your editor page? Regards, Mikulas1 (talk) 19:38, 18 Averil 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
He said that both himself and another editor had already completed translations for another language as well, as there were a number of requests pending. As for Laagh:.... That's just speaking about my travels. Laaghyn is the Manx word for days, i.e. I have spent days in those countries (there are clickable links so just follow through on each of them to find out which countries if you are unsure of the flags or the 3-digit country code). Hope that helps. Mac Tíre Cowag 21:19, 18 Averil 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks. Of course, that I knew the flags, but Manx-English dictionaries did not searched me meaning of that word, so I did not know if you speak about languages and your level of them, or something else as it turned out to be. Mikulas1 (talk) 09:32, 19 Averil 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I seem to have replied to the wrong section and caused confusion! That was meant for the Ido translation request. Sorry Mikulas. --Shimmin Beg (talk) 10:12, 19 Averil 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Do you really speak Serbian or use google translate? --Kolega2357 (talk) 00:12, 29 Averil 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'd say I have a level-1 of Serbian. I can read a bit of it, and I know a few phrases, but I wouldn't be able to hold a proper conversation. :) Mac Tíre Cowag 00:14, 29 Averil 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm very glad about that. Should have put that in the babel so that others know. Greeting! --Kolega2357 (talk) 00:19, 29 Averil 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've a level 1 in many languages, Kolega. I think I might put pressure on the Babel parameters if I did that ;) I only like to put in my Babel those languages that I would be most comfortable speaking, even if I'm not very good at them. Anyway, thank you for the barnstar, and welcome to our little project. If you ever need any help with anything, just let me know. We have a couple of regular users here so if I'm not available for whatever reason they would be happy to help too. Keep up the good work. --Mac Tíre Cowag 00:32, 29 Averil 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
